Choosing the right target words and patterns in phonological intervention is critical for increasing overall intelligibility (i.e., speech understandability). Regardless of severity level, optimal words for treatment are necessary for all children, including monolingual Spanish and bilingual Spanish-English children. This course provides strategies for choosing production practice words for phonological intervention. Topics will include the concept of shared versus unshared sounds as they relate to target selection, word choice recommendations in both English and Spanish, sample production practice words, group therapy case study and recommendations, and additional considerations for monolingual professionals working with bilingual children.

A child's ability to communicate and be understood by others is critical for early academic success. Children with reduced intelligibility (e.g., unintelligible speech) comprise the largest number of individuals on clinical caseloads in US schools, and data regarding children who speak other languages (e.g., Spanish) is sparse. This course provides a framework for phonological intervention for both monolingual Spanish and bilingual Spanish-English children. Topics will include the concept of shared versus unshared sounds, selecting optimal target patterns, and additional recommendations for bilingual children with highly unintelligible speech.
